This is the name of a great little song that I came across on a rather interesting little website that had been languishing in the backwaters of my bookmarks for months. The site is called grke, which is a shortened version of the name of site’s author, Graham Keeling. I somehow stumbled upon his site whilst browsing the forum on Outpost Gallifrey.
Anyway, about Evil Maria. It’s damn catchy - so catchy in fact that it’s been in my head for the last few days. Aaargh! People who can write songs like do that should be making megabucks! I have cheekily bounced “Evil Maria” over to this blog (using odeo.com) for your listening pleasure (use the player above). I hope this is OK, grke!
You have been warned - it's catchy!
The interesting thing about Evil Maria, is that it’s loosely based on the Sinclair ZX Spectrum game, “Jet Set Willy”, which is an astonishing coincidence as only just a week or two ago I was buggering around downloading Spectrum emulators and games over at www.worldofspectrum.org. There’s more to come on all that later...
Anway, all about Evil Maria (including the lyrics) here, and do check out grke.net – there’s some great tunes he’s written – fun and quirky (and damn catchy) stuff, and some other interesting things too.
